That might be a good idea, as long as you understand that it could be something else like a bad connection in the balun/combiner.

The trees certainly could be the major problem.
Trees: I've been here for 35 years, nothing has changed. Big trees get old and die, young trees replace them -- although a photo taken 35 years ago wouldn't look much different than these photos.

Last fall was no different than the previous 34 falls, but this fall is different. Just taking the knowns and thinking logically, I would conclude that it isn't the terrain/flora (which probably hasn't changed much since the ice age) there is something not quite right with the man-made antenna system.

As for a bad connector, would that have caused the two total blackouts I've had in the past year?

If I go this way, what preamp would you recommend?
